See, now you are confusing me. In the OP you state/ask:
Please put this feature in. People could give others a way to enjoy C-Store items, fansites and podcasts could use it to have prizes and contests, etc.
Combined with the title of the thread: Allow C-Store Points to be Gifted
Now we have a clear picture of this thread, to add the option to pass along Cryptic Points to friends/etc. Or, at least I thought we did. In response to the worries about usage by "Goldfarmers" (Which WILL happen) you state/ask:

I don't really see C-Store points as being able to be robbed from people by a traditional gold farmer, unless a gold farmer somehow tricks a player into sending them the 'gift' of c-store points, in which case it goes beyond your usual link / email / website scam that most fall into.
(Bolding/color done by me)
So which is it, energy credits or C-store points?
C-Store points WILL be abused by goldfarmers, because the ONLY way to get them is with money. If this idea is implemented it gives those farmers a way to circumvent the charges to players, and create a "black market" on C-Points.
You do realize "Energy Credits" and "C-Points" are two different things right?
