Martin, you're worrying me here:

"Once you cut a bagel in half, it's no longer a bagel, just another piece of bread."

I thought Bagels were special because they were not just ordinary bread - the dough being boiled first?   However I would agree with your sentiments.  I don't cut my morning toast in half either, I like a full slice to grip onto.

The additional surface area causes good bagels to go stale more quickly.

Also the flavour leaks out, just like when you cut spaghetti.

How to destroy a bagel

This morning, I stopped into a life place for a bagel. The bagelitself was ok as it had a good crust, but the people who prepared it ruined it. How so? They cut it on half after slicing ti and applying cream cheese. Begels must be fully round. Once you cut a bagel in half, it's no longer a bagel, just another piece of bread.

@Antedeluvian - "our tradition is to eat them open-face. More lox per unit area!".   I saw that from the photo in the main article.   As you may have seen from the link in my post above, the vendow I will go to only offers them as sandwiches (I guess that makes them easier to carry in a bag :-).

If When I make it to EELive 2015 I hope that you and/or Martin will take me in hand and expose me to some genuine Bagels!

Smoked salmon, with cream cheese and capers, would be my favourite sandwich filling,

Whilst it is not unknown to eat a bagel as a sandwich, our tradition is to eat them open-face. More lox per unit area!

@MB - Martin you are obviously a purist in this regard and thought I don't always agree with them, I have learned that purists usually know what they are talking about.   Also, on of your photo captions states that "Smoked salmon, also known as lox, is acceptable to bagel purists".    So I feel fairly safe.   Smoked salmon, with cream cheese and capers, would be my favourite sandwich filling, and I would not want too much other stuff with it.   But I will try and get a couple more plain bagels to take away as well (I will have a long drive home so they will come in handy I am sure......)

To me  meat of any kind has no place on a bagel. I suggest you taste the bagel itself, with just some cream cheese. That way, you'll more taste the bagel, not the toppings.

I just returned from the local bagel bakery, with two dozen. Plain, rasin, egg, poppy seeds, black and white flavors. None of this jalapeno stuff for me.
