Question: compliments and mitzvot

I have a vague idea that I read somewhere something to the effect of, "Someone who pays a compliment performs a mitzvah; someone who passes along a compliment performs two mitzvot (or a greater mitzvah, or something along those lines)".

However, I am not having any luck tracking down a source online (I haven't tried to look it up in a library because I'm at home, it's after 9 p.m., and it just came up a few minutes ago).

Do you have any idea what I'm talking about? Is there such a commentary?
