How do I unblock Safari from making a call from the iOS web client join flow?

I am getting the error "This website has been blocked from automatically starting a call."

Short answer: Choose Allow Call and the call can be initiated.

Longer answer:
This is a Safari feature. When you click a link that may initiate a call from a website, you get the option of Call or Cancel. If you choose Cancel 3 times, Safari thinks that you maybe experiencing a problem where the website is creating unwanted call requests. Safari then starts providing this error message. ("This website has been blocked from automatically starting a call." Ignore | Allow Call)

When you choose Allow Call, Safari will reset the flag and will return to providing the option to Call or Cancel.
