When it comes to online dating it is totally about looks.

When it comes to having an actual chance, you're correct. Negative effects outside of looks can still kill it, tho.

A man has to be a 10+ in the looks department to get any messages from ladies.

Total exaggeration, unless you're talking about a 20-pt scale on looks. :) Otherwise, there wouldn't be 80% guys ignored, 20% guys getting replies. It'd be more like 99% ignored, 1% getting replies, if that. A guy has to project himself as a viable, comfortable option to interact with -- and looks greater than guys' who she can readily get on there.

A lady can be a 4 in the looks department and she would still get plenty of messages from men.

I wouldn't say Plenty, if not in an over-populated area. But yeah, they'll get more than guys who are 7s because in general, guys write girls -- very little the other way around. And there are plenty of guys who are 2s/3s/4s online, who will be hitting up a gal who's a 4. Even though she may not be some "hot catch" to many of them, she'll still be within the range for many to be genuinely hangout-worthy.
