How come you don't connect to everybody?

Here's something I've always wondered, when you download a torrent, how come you're not connected to every user who's downloading the same show?

For example, let's say through the website you see that there are 15 seeds and 30 leechers. But when you start up the torrent, you're only connected to like 10 seeds and 20 peers..... how come there's no contact with the others? I usually set my Upload rate to 40 kB/s, and Max uploads to 30.

[Right now I'm downloading a Zep torrent from somewhere else and I see that there are 58 seeds, but I'm only connected to 20?!?]

Just something I've always wondered, thanks
