Based on your side of the story it sounds pretty shady. Total speculation: maybe someone got a ticket assigned to them and slacked off, closing it over and over with a canned response. A rep can probably watch a lot of YouTube if they do that to most of their tickets. Then when you'd reopened it by replying enough times to make them worried about their manager noticing they fixed it quietly and closed it. Asking why it took so long spooked them bad enough to threaten you for asking questions about their service/response which I imagine is prohibited unless the customer is being hostile.
