Recently, I have noticed some question titles beginning with "Eeeek!" It's now become kind of a meme here in meta, but why are we tolerating this?
Maybe I'm missing something, but it's not better than "Urgent! Please help!"

To seriously answer (even though it's crying for joke answers), the Meta community does an awesome job of giving support to users who have questions, problems, ideas, and so on. This isn't always easy, since you're often dealing with trolls, cluelessness, language barriers, and "where did my rep go" questions.
Memes like the "Eeeek!" thing give Meta a certain personality and are a not-so-small part of controlling the insanity and keeping the whole thing a bit light-hearted. After all, most of the people here don't get paid, even though they do tons of work to keep Meta organized and be helpful to others, and a "keep your humor at home" policy would surely not help in keeping everyone motivated.
In the past, it has been proven that the Meta community is actually also pretty good at making sure that the funny doesn't get out of hand.
