500 errors will cause site to be dropped from index but not completely.
Once errors are fixed it should re-appear pretty quickly.

"Reid how do you know 500 errors cause sites to be dropped? "
after a while (trying to see yoru page) google gives up. Makes sense. I blocked them for 10-14 days and got the "no info available for this url". A week later, I was indexed again

when it gets a 500 it assumes the server is down so it keeps trying, if it goes on for a while then the page gets put on the back shelf for a while (not dropped completely from the index) if the server comes back up no 500 then the page recovers.
I imagine if it went on for a long long time then they would just drop it.
I don't 'know' wether this is the case - just the behavior I've seen - walkman for instance.
