I pay compliments when I see something I like. It makes me feel good to make other people feel good. My mother always said, "you get more with honey then you do with vinegar." She also said, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything." Also if I'm going to give criticism, I also like to pay genuine compliments. So yes, I pay compliments because I mean them, they make people feel good, and they soften people. There is nothing sinister in a genuine compliment.
