You're both absolutely right. Most of the fat content of a typical avocado is made of oleic acid (the same fatty acid present in olive oil), and it is indeed a "good" fat. It's good for your health and I enjoy eating avocados.
But I was answering to somebody who said he was on a "super low carb / low fat / no dairy / pescatarian diet".
A good fatty acid is still a fatty acid, technically speaking.
Technically speaking, she could still be consuming low quantities of total fat throughout her entire day, so it'd still constitute following a low fat diet.
Dammit. I want spicy guacamole now.

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers

I should probably make a grocery list, but I dislike writing things down. I did put this on my mental list for today's shopping trip after having some at a memorial day party this past Saturday. They're actually surprisingly good.
