Can you please correct the Documentation here: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/SPI and change the word ICSP to SPI at DUE?

Do you mean the "Connections" table, where it says: Due   ICSP-4   ICSP-1   ICSP-3?

I suppose maybe it's not accurate to call that header "ICSP" on the Due or Zero, but we are used to calling it that from the AVR boards. I've never seen anyone call it the "SPI header", but I see that the header is labeled "SPI" on the silkscreen on both the Due and Zero boards.

Exactly.

It is horrible almost all pages footer contains this text and link to the forum: Corrections, suggestions, and new documentation should be posted to the Forum.

The fact is that the people who maintain the documentation don't read every post that is made to the forum. However, posting to the forum about documentation issues does still serve a useful purpose in that it gives the community members a chance to provide feedback on the proposed change before it's finally reported in a way that will be seen by the people who can make the change. Think of the forum as the initial triage. For example, I hope that my reply will help you to submit a high quality issue report to Arduino Support. Your original post was vague and confusing. That sort of issue report results in the people who can fix the issue wasting time on misunderstandings and back and forth, when their time would have been much better spent improving the documentation.

I suggest changing the links on every documentation page to the forum topic dedicated to suggestions, corrections, etc because now the links point to the other software development topic.
https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/SPI
https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/board,23.0.html

I agree 1000%. The "Other Software Development" forum board is certainly not the right place to post about corrections, suggestions, and new documentation. Please report that via the support form:
