This is a feature and not a bug.

Instant messanging is for instant communication, if i'm not there i don't care 
what happened, important things should be sent by email or other actually 
archiveable format.

You can't expect me to read a 200 messages backlog in 20 channels just in case 
something important was said while i was away. 

Also one of the reasons of why i hate to use Telegram for anything that 
"actually matters" is this "always on" feature.

Telegram messages end up in my phone, and show a notification, so i have to 
read it because my mind wants my task bar without notifications, but once read 
the "you have to read this" is gone, so if it's something important i need to 
do later i will forget and won't get done.

And to top that off there's no way to "log off from channels" like on IRC 
(where i am on some channels during work day and some others on non work day),  
so it creates the false impression that i'm "always avaiable" when i'm not and 
that together with the "no way to mark messages as unread if they are 
important" makes it really bad for serious use.
