Is it possible to chat to peers on torrents such as utorrent or any other client?

if not, I would like to know why.

It seems to be a useful feature

Update:

If a peer wasn't  seeding, I don't think they would appear on the peers list.

"the original uploader is no longer seeding, but other users are, so it may be pointless to send him a message."

It's not the uploader I'd want to send the message to per say... just any peer including the uploader if he/she were a peer

    torrenting is all about anonymity. if you could connect to them, it would make it less secure.

    some torrent sites let you leave comments to the uploader, which is slightly safer, but not the torrent apps, because the torrent format was not designed for messaging.

    also, sometimes the original uploader is no longer seeding, but other users are, so it may be pointless to send him a message...
