I mean, sure, I've had moments where I wanted to tell a woman that she was very hot/beautiful. But what's that going to give me? It's not like the girl will reply: "oh that's so sweet, do you wanna come home with me?" More likely, she will think I'm a creep. So... it's better to keep those things to yourself.

Online communication let's people project tone onto their communication in a way that doesn't carry over to other people. Most guys are filled with positive emotion when they see a beautiful girl, and the only thing clamping down on that is the social anxiety of potential rejection, even if they have no intention of asking them out.
For men, If a beautiful woman looks at you disapprovingly, it just wrecks you. Social relevance never comes into the picture.
But online, men dont get that; there isn't anxiety around it, so many men have the happy response of:
"Seeing this person made me smile, how cool is that! They should know they made me happy, and be happy too."
That's literally all the thought that internet stranger complimenters put into it. They aren't thinking it through, and in their head it's not a focal point of the conversation, it's an ice breaker.

Ummm, well I never get hit on online, but I don't post my pics. But In real life I've had many variations of the *beautiful* compliment. I think guys online are doing it cuz they're desperate, but that's just where my head goes when a guy randomly sends me some *send me a titty pic* comment
It's mostly just online from what I can tell. It's like because they are behind a screen they forget that there is another actual person on the other side.
