This is what the documentation says:
> If the functions returns {noreply,NewState} or {noreply,NewState,Timeout}, the gen_server
> will continue executing with NewState. Any reply to From must be given explicitly using
> gen_server:reply/2.

See http://erlang.org/doc/man/gen_server.html#Module:handle_call/3
