Macbook Console Command Problems!

Hello,

All the console commands do not work when I enter them. I realize there is a problem trying to connect to community servers at the moment BUT you can still connect using net.connect ip:port. When I try this command on my mac NOTHING happens. When I try the grass.on false command this also DOES NOT work. This leads me to believe that all console commands on mac are being ignored/not working. Does anyone have a solution to this?

you have to type it twice
