So I was going through a thread just like any other day, right? When all of the sudden the page gets redirected to this page (don't go here): https: // caivelitemind . com/ 1821670147756/702894976e7cf0eebd2e3ca3c4b51d69. html
It said I should update my Adobe Flash, and then it started to download automatically. Thankfully Chrome caught it in time, saying it wasn't a commonly downloaded file. Not that I ever fucking suspected it was.
Apparently, it's an ad-delivered malware attempt that's apparently going around on forums (that link is safe, I promise. Enable AdBlock first, though). I've re-enabled AdBlock now just to be safe.
Just wanted to give you guys a heads-up
But other than that, I'm not really sure what to do now? Should I try to blacklist that domain and disable AdBlock here again?

That depends if other people got the redirect. There are 2 types of ad-delivered malware. There's actual ad-delivered malware (Redirect ad pops up and sends you to a malware site) and then there is the type that pretends to be an ad-delivered malware but is actually a small virus or otherwise that has infected your computer and is trying to get you download something else / take you to other sites.
If others got the redirect then it's likely the former, if they didn't it's likely the latter.
I would scan your computer anyway to be on the safe side in the small chance it is the latter and you already have an infection.
