Has Google Stopped Indexing Blogs?

This might seem an overly dramatic headline but it seems that Google is having trouble indexing certain WordPress blogs.

DaveN spotted the issue first when he realised his new blog posts were missing from the Google search index even though Google had spidered them and included them in the blog search results.

In what might be a related issue Google has been alerting people (myself included on 2 WordPress blogs) to “General HTTP Errors” in the Webmaster Tools console.

As far as I can tell from looking at crawl logs Google accessed these pages just fine so why are the errors appearing and what are they?
