Chris, a number of people spent their own time to help you understand the details of your problem. I see a lot of high-quality information in this thread, conveyed in a pretty polite way - definitely not "getting attacked by random people", as you state it. You just need to share your RAW file and not the Lightroom-modified DNG file. It's pretty simple.
Personally, I have understood a number of useful things about the DNG format. Thanks to everyone for the insightful thread.
